Females begin laying eggs right after their first mating, & both sexes will mate several times during their lives. Adults in summer generations live from 2-5 weeks. Each year, the final generation of Monarchs, which emerges in late summer and early fall, has a job: to migrate to overwintering grounds, in central Mex for east Monarchs or in Cali for western Mon. Here they survive the long winter until conditions in the US allow them to return to reproduce. adults can live up to 8-9 months.
I find that people pin my watercolor paintings all the time for tattoo inspiration and I truly don't mind at all. I only wish that if someone gets a tattoo using my art that they would send me a picture because I would LOVE to see it!!! Please!
Keep the branches exactly as they are, but, instead of the butterfly wing, make that side a cluster of monarchs flying with some landed on the branch stretched out. Also, shading it so that it pops out and making it more realistic looking.
